You can only guarantee what you are doing right now; not what you plan to do.
While we often romanticize that which is exotic, we tend to favor the local variety.

Adapted to reality

Inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet:

I'll look to like if looking liking move; but no more will I endart mine eye when the mark doth reciprocate, and I continue by.

Whether we have a proclivity for formal education or not, we cannot deny our inextricable relationship with learning, nor can we deny that we need it and find it useful. Through learning, for instance, upon hearing a noise whose origin we cannot visibly discern, we still often automatically know which noises we can ignore, those which we should run toward and attend to, and those...from which we should run like hell! This inaction vs. action, and valence of action, can be applied to myriad other everyday encounters, whose facilitation we owe due respect to our ability to learn, associate, and detect covariance of stimuli.
